Can't Take the Heat
Heat Action Day 2022
Show Notes

It's June! That means temperatures are rising around the northern hemisphere as we enter the summer months. This year we held the first ever, Heat Action Day, on June 14th, 2022, with over 50 heat flashmobs performed in cities and towns around the world to raise awareness of heat risks and simple actions to #BeatTheHeat. In this episode, we hear from IFRC President Rocca, as well as representatives from the Bangladesh Red Crescent, Norwegian Red Cross and even the Chief Heat Officer from Athens, Greece about why we should care about heat risks and how we can address them.
